    Nobody knows! Nintendo could have learned a good lesson with the success of RE4 and they could start making games for the older generation.

    I agree Nintendo has some of the best quality games of all time. PS3 and Xbox 360 would definitely be better because of their claimed hardware capabilities. But Nintendo has always had something for everyone and I will definitely buy this system.

    PS3 and Xbox360 will probably have the ability to do the same thing with roms,it really isn't new to be honest.They have emulators for PS2 that can play NES,SNES,Genesis,etc...I'm not trying to start a fight or anything,but PS3 has both consoles beat in my opinion.The graphics in the gameplay haven't been shown yet,only cutscenes in games.Nobody really has a clue what the actual in-game graphics will look like yet.Nintendo is still slow with the consoles,and lacks games for adults which is a downfall.Instead of making games for kids why not make games for everyone like PS3 and Xbox360 will do.PS3 wins my vote with the wide selection of games,and has the built in player for movies.They actually all have one special thing,just depends on what you like to be honest.

    I feel that the NR's controler might be enough to grip gamers. the only thing Nintendo needs is online play, if they had that, they may be unstopable.
    I still feel that the NR will the most because it's cheaper. People will have one 36o and NR or one Ps3 and NR in most house. I feel that in every household there will be a NR. Hopefully Nintendo won't end up like sega....Except if they do, they won't make games either, nintendo needs some controller because they're falling off since Xbox came in the game

    To sum up the important stuff regarding XBL:

    There will be two versions of Xbox Live. Silver is free (everyone gets it), and Gold is a paid subscription, like the current XBL. It looks like Xbox Live will be free on the weekends for everyone; Gold members will get it all the time, obviously. Current Xbox Live accounts will carry over to the 360 and become Gold Xbox Live accounts. Both Gold and Silver members will be able to download demos, trailers, and other content through XBL.

    This info seems pretty legit, and some insiders have confirmed that this is indeed a real leak.

    I will believe it when I see more in regards to these leaks. With those specs it appears to be more powerful than my computer and should cost twice more(my computer cost 974 dollars that I built). I know that all consoles lose money and that the companies hope to recoup them with game licenses royalties and online subscription but that system should cost atleast 700 dollars if not more. 3 processors at 3.2ghz each? Damn!
